tv CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera CNN June 9, 2018 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
you are in the "cnn newsroom." i'm ana cabrera in new york. so glad to have you with me on this weekend. president trump on his way right now to the place where he may become part of the most powerful diplomatic moment in recent american history. the plan is still a go for him to meet face to face with the leader of north korea on tuesday in singapore. the president earlier boarding air force one in canada where he
cut short his participation at the g7 summit. how will he go into this meeting with the north korean leader, and how will he, the self-described great negotiator know he's not being played? the president telling reporters he'll know almost instantly. >> i think within the first minute, i'll know. >> how? >> just my touch, my feel. that's what i do. how long will it take to figure out whether or not they're serious? i said maybe in the first minute. you know, the way they say that you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds. you ever hear that one? well, i think that very quickly i'll know whether or not something good is going to happen. >> this is just in. a few minutes ago the vice president, mike pence, speaking at an event in washington says his boss has zero reservations about meeting the north korean leader. >> now comes a historic summit between the president of the
united states and chairman kim of north korea. as president trump said this week, he approaches this summit with confidence. the truth is he's been preparing for this his whole life. the president truly believes that kim jong-un, in the president's words, wants to do something great for his people. but as the president often says, we'll see what happens. >> with us now live, our cnn senior diplomatic correspondent michelle kozinski and senior international correspondent ivan watson. ivan in just a few hours, president trump arrives in singapore. if this plan holds, this historic meeting will happen between him and kim jong-un on tuesday. does anybody involved expect real tangible results, or is this meeting alone enough of a major moment? >> reporter: well, it's certainly a major moment because it would be the first ever meeting between a north korean leader and a u.s. president. so that's already quite a big
milestone. as far as expectations go, well, for more than a week now president trump's been kind of downplaying expectations, really since he met with a top north korean official, kim yong-chol, who had met with secretary of state mike pompeo in new york and then traveled down to washington and hand-delivered a letter from kim jong-un to president trump at the white house. and they spoke for some time then. and since then, the trump administration has not been talking about immediately getting a deal for north korea to scrap its nuclear weapons or, as the trump administration has put it, complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. instead president trump has started talking about a process. and in canada before getting on his flight to come here to singapore, he again repeated that, you know, at a minimum it would be a relationship. he would start a dialogue between the two leaders. of course he would like much more. but we're no longer talking
about a first historic meeting of the u.s. president and a north korean leader and hammering out a deal for north korea to give up the nuclear weapons that it has spent decades and millions of dollars trying to develop. instead, it does appear they're trying to lower expectations. could something else like perhaps finally peace on the korean peninsula between north and south, something that has not been in place since the korean war -- could that perhaps be on the table or, as mike pompeo has suggd, could there simply be a statement between the two leaders, a bilateral statement which would then lead to more discussions between top officials down the road. >> which sounds like that could be the more likely scenario. michelle, president trump cut short his visit at the g7 summit in canada to take off for singapore. the other world leaders there have some mixed reviews of the message trump brought to quebec. >> reporter: yeah. in his presser today, president trump tried to make it sound
like there was progress, that everybody understands. he sent out tweets afterwards saying -- you know, he just made it seem like everybody's on the same page and things are great. went real well. i think he called at one point the summit a tremendous success. so now that we're starting to hear in press conferences from the other world leaders that were there, not so much. i mean they're pushing back on his goals of this, you know, tariff back and forth. it's just not going to work. they're pushing back on his goal of having russia rejoin so that it's the g8. here's some of what canadian prime minister justin trudeau just said. listen. >> it would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on july 1st, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the americans have unjustly applied to us.
i have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because canadians, we're polite. we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. >> reporter: remember, french president emmanuel macron called trump's tariffs illegal at one point. he's especially been pushing back hard on what has happened and what this has come to. so today you hear president trump talking about wanting not tariffs at all but wants completely free trade ultimately with tariffs lifted. i'm sure there are many that would agree wouldn't that be great if we do reach that goal. but the president seems to feel like if he uses this tactic of threats and tariffs and bullying in the view of many, that i'll end up getting what he really wants. and he might have some success with this plan. however, the argument against it is, is this really necessary to have -- to put the footing of
these relationships with the u.s.'s closest allies on this tense plane when you might get the same result through dialogue or otherwise. and also a plan like this that is -- you know, he's already applied tariffs, continued with the threats. could that just bite him in the end where if you're going to get less cooperation, less respect, and less influence on other issues that you need help on, especially when it comes to putting pressure on other countries where you really do need a coordinated effort, ana. >> it sounds like the president wants to apply more pressure, michelle, because as you were speaking, the president tweeted this. based on justin, referring to justin trudeau, the prime minister of canada, based on his fault statements at his news conference and the fact that canada is charging massive tariffs to our u.s. farmers, workers, and companies, i have instructed our u.s. reps not to endorse the communique as we look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the u.s. market. so the result of this summit, we
were all waiting to see what was going to come. were they going to sign this communique, a statement that has all hands on deck approach. and it sounds like the president is now saying, u.s. isn't in it. michelle? >> reporter: this is amazing to me because he was so big on maintaining, even if it was the semblance of good relationships. at his press conference, he was asked by a cnn reporter about isn't there some tension there and other leaders are angry or frustrated, especially by the tariffs. i mean he couldn't handle that question. he started attacking the press, attacking cnn specifically, saying that the relationships were a perfect ten, that everything was great and, you know, calling these world leaders by their first names. so it seemed like he so wanted there to be some kind of unity, and then we had word that he was going to sign this communique, that the u.s. would be a part of it. but now that he's heard what was said in the statements, in the
press conferences and the tweets afterwards, he doesn't like it. he's angry again at the tone that this has taken, and now he's not going to sign the communique. so now it turns out it is as these other leaders predicted. remember emmanuel macron had this twitter back and forth that if the president is willing to be isolated, then we're fine with having this be the g6 plus one and having our own communique. and after all this bluster and all these statements, that seems to be what it's turned out to be. >> all right, michelle kozinski, ivan watson, i guess the relationship's no longer a ten between trump and those allies. i appreciate you guys. let's discuss more now. cnn global affairs analyst kimberly dozier, ron brownstein. first, ron, to you. your reaction to this new tweet from president trump. >> these are unpriecedented moments. i was thinking back even at the
height of the tension with many of the allies in the iraq war with george w. bush, i don't think we've seen such a rupture with our traditional allies. i think it is reflective of the way the president approaches global affairs and that he does not believe that there is a value in the u.s. being the leader of an international rules-based order. he views each interaction essentially as a zero-sum game and kind of on a blank piece of paper where he's as willing to give comfort to traditional adversaries as he is willing to, you know, kind of conflict with traditional allies -- every u.s. president from franklin develop through barack obama believed it was in our own self-interest to organize the leading democracies of the world in a rules-based international order, and the president simply is in the process of tearing that down. >> kimberly, let me read another
tweet from the president. prime minister justin trudeau of canada acted so meek and mild during our g7 meetings, only to give a news conference after i left saying that, quote, u.s. tariffs were kind of insulting, and he will not be pushed around. very dishonest and weak. our tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy. sounds like he's back to personal insults. >> well, think about this. from the point of view of his base, this is music to their ears. he is standing up to the europeans. he is standing up to the canadians and doing it in a very public way about a subject that is so complex that frankly most voters don't get down into those details. so this can now be resolved in the coming weeks and months behind closed doors and might not work out so well for the u.s. but this is what's got the headline just like the way he shamed nato leaders at his first
nato summit meeting, with them standing right next to him. he is doing this sort of theatrical throwing everything out that was the old way of doing things and throwing a bit of a tantrum and then leaving it up to them to come back to see how much they will offer him to back down from this maximalist position. >> can i just add two thoughts there? i mean, one, we have seen the pattern repeatedly starting with the transpacific partnership trade agreement to the paris climate agreement to the iran agreement where the president says, you know, i want to throw out what we have, but i'm going to negotiate something better. how is that going on all those fronts? how is the u.s./japan bilateral trade agreement to replace the tpp going? in fact, when you isolate yourself from all the nations in the world, it turns out they are not necessarily willing -- your fra additional allies are not necessarily willing to do back flips to accommodate your demands as we're seeing again on
nafta, with the potential of that ultimately foundering as well. i think there is a kind of an unreality at some level of saying, well, yes, we are now in this escalating trade conflict with all of these traditional allies. but we are going to supersede this and leap over into some grand new bargain that's going to be vastly superior as he has argued in iran, as he argued on tpp, as he argued on paris. none of that is happening, and i would think we have pretty limited prospects for this as well. >> kim, you mentioned this is red meat for his base, these new tweets. yet he made a real point to talk up his relationship with all of the allies when he was making his remarks at his presser just today. he talked about the relationship being on a ten. afterwards he was tweeting about how everybody understood where he was coming from. what do you think changed in the last few hours? >> absolutely. i don't think he realizes what he's doing is encouraging both european countries and canada to
cooperate in a new way against him. and i don't think he saw some of this coming. it's going to get more uncomfortable from some european officials i've spoken to. they said, look, we're not always great at working together. but in the face of his insults, especially with our people watching, we have to make a stand and stand up to this bully. so think down the line when the united states has to ask for something really tough, for instance assistance in counterterrorism, assistance in perhaps providing more troops for africa where the u.s. wants to draw down its troop presence. i think they're going to find some no's coming this summer at the summit in brussels with nato. >> and, ana, in terms of the politics and the base, you know, i think it's more complicated. this pushes directly at the most important fault line in american politics under trump. what we have seen in general under trump is an acceleration of kind of what i have called the class inversion where
republicans are stronger and stronger with blue collar white voters, but trump is underperforming any republican president ever among college-educated white collar white voters. and that is exactly the fault line on which american public opinion divides over our relationships with our allies. i agree there's a big part of that blue collar, non-urban, evangelical base that thrills to this kind of confrontation. but historically white collar republicans have been much more open to the idea that we can advance -- that we magnify our power by working in concert with allies. and i do think in the same way there are a lot of republican elected officials who get heartburn at the idea of the president isolating us from traditional allies and calling, for example, for putin to be reinstated to the g7, this does push at what is already happening, which is the decline -- the challenge with republicans are facing with those white collar voters which we're going to see play out in many of these white collar suburban seats in the house this
fall which are the best opportunity for democrats to regain a majority. >> please stay with me. on the other side, we'll have much more on the president's war of words with the canadian prime minister and more breaking news out of the sports world. a horse named justify was just crowned the triple crown winner. we will be live from the belmont stakes in moments. once there was an organism so small no one thought much of it at all. people said it just made a mess until exxonmobil scientists put it to the test. they thought someday it could become fuel and power our cars wouldn't that be cool? and that's why exxonmobil scientists think it's not small at all. energy lives here. i'm still giving it my best even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm up for that. eliquis.
eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. so what's next? seeing these guys. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you. cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. i thought i was managing my moderate to severe crohn's disease. then i realized something was missing... me. my symptoms were keeping me from being there.
so, i talked to my doctor and learned humira is for people who still have symptoms of crohn's disease after trying other medications. and the majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission in as little as 4 weeks. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
the relationship that i've had with the people, the leaders of these countries, has been -- i would really rate it on a scale of zero to ten, i would rate it a ten. that doesn't mean i agree with what they're doing, and they know very well that i don't. >> so that was the president just before he got on air force one to go to singapore. and before he gets off that plane, this is him now. this is his latest tweet. prime minister justin trudeau of canada acted so meek and mild during our g7 meetings only to give a news conference after i left saying that u.s. tariffs
were kind of insulting and he will not be pushed around. very dishonest and weak. let me bring back our panel, ron brownstein, kimberly dozier, and michelle kozinski. ron, is this just trump being upset because he can't take criticism? >> well, i think there are several things that run through my mind when you see his tweet. the first is that it is a bra d broader pattern of the trump presidency that he always needs a conflict with an -- i mean these twitter wars kind of fall on each other one after the other. and sometimes, you know, most often the targets are domestic, and sometimes they're international. but they're always there. there's always something, someone with whom he is engaged in a feud. it is part of the way he defines himself to his base. as we talked about before, as someone who is willing to kind of break the crockery in order to defend their interests and also frankly he tries to lead the media by the nose and kind of force us each time to follow whatever feud he has cooked up
for the week. but i also do agree that, you know, especially with the republicans in congress having moved from a posture of more independence at the outset of his presidency toward one of essentially circling the wagons and defending him and refusing to challenge him, he doesn't get effectively challenged that often in the american political system at this point, except occasionally by a judge, who he usually then attacks on twitter as well. so this is an unusual circumstance for him to have these international leaders standing up to him in this way, and i think you are seeing the reaction that you get. >> again, michelle, this other tweet where he talks about now not being part of this communique. he says based on justin's false statements at his news conference and the fact that canada is charging massive tariffs to our u.s. farmers, workers and companies, i have instructed our u.s. reps not to endorse the communique as we look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the u.s. market. so help me understand what that means if the u.s. doesn't sign this communique. >> well, it doesn't really have a lot of bearing. it's just the u.s., again,
isolated from its allies in this way. i mean trufnl femp feels this i completely justified, but he's really fulfilling the prophecy of emmanuel macron who said a day ago that, well, he might not mind being isolated, but so don't we mind together signing our own communique on things that we agree upon because, remember, from the beginning european leaders knew and people within the white house acknowledged that trump didn't want to go to the g7. he knew that he would feel like the odd man out. he knew he was in for more difficult conversations, which were only continuing on from the very difficult conversations he's been having with the sufu.s closest allies over the last several weeks, over iran, over trade and tariffs, over sanctions. so he didn't want to be there. he cut his trip way short. he conspicuously wasn't going to attend these climate events. remember, we're talking sort of the most dramatic elements of this trade.
but one of the key components of the g7 agenda this year was climate change. so there was always going to be this question of whether trump would sign on. but what ends up breaking it for him? it was a few things that the canadian prime minister said after the whole thing had -- you know, after trump was gone and the thing was over that trump didn't like and rubbed him the wrong way. by the way, earlier in the day when trump was insisting and becoming angry with the press, you know, insisting that these relationships with the u.s.'s allies were good and a perfect ten and everything's fine, and you're fake news, what you're saying about these relationships is fake news, and there's not tension there. well, now the drama is back, and that news doesn't quite seem so fake anymore. >> i mean that's just it, kimberly. he went into this summit insulting macron and trudeau on twitter, and then he today, in
his own speech, accuses our allies of robbing the u.s. trudeau says canada will not be pushed around, and this is the response from trump? >> well, the other thing that he did, of course, was say that russia needed to be there. russia was expelled from the g8 for invading ukraine and annexing crimea. he seemed to have completely forgotten that his own intelligence community blamed russia for the recent attack on the former russian spy in britain. and there he's telling the head of britain, i think that russia should be here. so he is getting a dose of reality from these leaders on a number of different fronts and then expressing it publicly. i think he's not -- as ron was saying, he's just not used to having people stand up to him.
he's not used to things getting uncomfortable. yes, that is part of negotiations, but i think he thinks that part of negotiations stays behind closed doors when it's uncomfortable for him. >> what kind of message do you think this sends going into the summit with kim jong-un? >> it sends a message that he's got a thin skin, and it's easy to rattle him. but i think from the korean -- the north korean point of view, this is going to be a carefully choreographed, made for photos event. you're not going to see any sort of disagreement publicly. we're going to hear about the disagreements later. >> all of you stick around. we have more to discuss after a quick break.

president trump on the attack on twietter. specifically going after canada and its prime minister, justin trudeau, after leaving the g7 summit with the allies in which he said the relationship was at a ten. now saying, not so fast. in fact, he's not even going to sign the communique that he had initially agreed to be a part of, a deal among the g7 allies. let's take a look at some of the pictures that may help tell the story of exactly what kind of relationship the u.s. president has with the other members of the g7. here's a picture taken by the u.s. this was tweeted out by a white house aide. you can see trump seated, all the world leaders around him.
here's how germany tweeted it. in this one you can see merkel leaning across the table. here's how canada spun it. again, the same moment, different angle. different country. in this one, it's prime minister justin trudeau, not trump, who looks like he's overseeing discussions. let's bring back our panel. i want to get your take, ron brownstein, on what you see when you look at those pictures. >> i'm going with merkel. i think that is the more accurate reflection of kind of where we are in the world right now where, you know, there was a report this week that germany -- the german government for the first time feels that it has to develop a kind of a strategy for dealing with a fundamentally hostile u.s. you know, one thing that happened around the edges of this was the president celebrating the new italian government, which is a populist, nativist, right-wing, anti-migrant government. you've had the new german ambassador from the trump administration talking about promoting kind of populist,
nativist parties across europe. i mean this is an inflection point, you know, and it is likely to get worse before it gets better. i mean if you go down the list, as we said, you start with the trans-pacific partnership, the paris climate accord, the iran agreement. nafta after this weekend, you know, the idea of a swift renegotiation of the north american free trade agreement seems pretty unlikely. and youo wonder what is the breaking point for congressional republicans. i mean they have generally, as we've talked about over these 18 months become more deferential to the president. but one area where you're seeing probably more geysers of discontent than any other is trade because so many key constituencies in the republican coalition are uneasy with the prospect of trade wars. so whether that gets more intense, bob corker is trying to overturn some of this. mitch mcconnell says, no, we don't want to challenge the president. can they hold that line? i don't know.
>> can it be the u.s. against the world, michelle? >> i mean how to answer that. it's a place that generally a nation would not want to be, especially when there are so many crises either in effect or looming. you need cooperation on a lot of things, and the u.s. has found this in the past. the u.s. needed a lot of cooperation to get the iran nuclear deal. remember? obama needed that. he needed a lot of cooperation to fight isis, which is now becoming a success. the u.s. will need continued cooperation on that. the u.s. needed cooperation and continues to need cooperation in putting pressure on north korea. that's another particularly difficult one. the u.s. will need cooperation in fighting the influence of china and the aggressive tendencies of russia. but in this case even today, we saw trump seemingly carrying water for vladimir putin.
so i feel like, you know, we all know trump's strategy, to break down the old sort of structures of how things are done, to think outside the box and do things that are daring and bold and america first. and there's a possibility that he'll get some successes on that. i mean maybe he's about to get the biggest success, which will be ultimately denuclearizing north korea. we just don't know what the outcome is. but when you look at the economy and in the near term getting into these potential trade wars with close u.s. allies and alienating them when you might well need their cooperation down the road, and to get a good deal yourself, you're likely going to need cooperation on that. that's why there's a lot of worry, and that's why you are getting pushback from republicans and from the u.s. chamber of commerce and groups that are seriously worried that, you know, even though he's trying things out and he's talking big and he's putting
threats out there that might not all come true, there's still a real risk of having it come back and bite you, maybe in ways you don't necessarily expect. >> kimberly, quickly if you will, i just think about the u.s. credibility going into this negotiation in singapore with the leader of north korea. and in one day, the president says the relationships are fantastic after he had been on the attack on twitter before going to the summit. and then he's back on the attack, throwing insults out to american allies. does america and the president's credibility and the ability to trust he's going to do what he says he's going to do matter in this -- going into in the north korean negotiation? >> well, for the north korea negotiations to succeed, he's going to need other nations at the other end of that to help back up whatever he's able to secure. he's going to need other nations
for increasing sanctions on a number of bad actors, including iran, and what he's unfortunately encouraging in the international order is for other relationships to form between european nations, between other western nations, and also even some nations reaching out to china and even russia as alternates to the united states. those new relationships may well remain even when the u.s. gets friendlier. >> another important relationship, of course, is the relationship with our allies in the region when we're talking about the north korea summit. how is south korea going to take this latest move by the president as he attacks on twitter american allies? we'll discuss when we come back. you wouldn't accept an incomplete job

president trump isn the air right now, headingo singapore for tuesday's historic summit with north korea's kim jong-un. the two men will finally meet face to face. the president today casting the summit as a once in a lifetime opportunity for kim. watch. >> he's got an opportunity the likes of which i think almost, if you look into history, very few people have ever had. he can take that nation with those great people and truly make it great. so it's a one-time -- it's a one-time shot. >> of course kim will be paying attention to how president trump just dealt with his counterparts in the g7. in person he said they had a great relationship, and then on the plane ride after he left, he just tweeted that the canadian prime minister is dishonest and
weak. let's go to cnn international correspondent anna coren live in seoul, south korea. tuesday's summit is especially critical for south korea. how are they to interpret the president's actions today? >> reporter: look, ana, i think it's fair to say that the south koreans will have their blinkers on. the reason i say that is they don't want anything to derail the upcoming summit. so, yes, obviously they're hearing what president trump is tweeting. they are reading it. but they will not want to engage in that. they want this summit to happen, and they don't want anything to jeopardize it, ana. after the inter-korean summit, there was a poll taken here, and three-quarters of south koreans polled found kim jong-un to be trustworthy. now, this was a man who not so long ago was being described as a murder rouous dictator and nur
lunatic. he'd been developing his nuclear program and threatening war on the south koreans. this is such an incredible turnaround, and the reason being south koreans want this to happen. they want change here on the korean peninsula. at the very least for there to be a peace treaty. we have to remember, ana, that south korea has been at war with the north koreans since the korean war in 1950. at the end of that, three years, later, 1953, an armistice was signed but there was no peace treaty. so at the very least, they are hoping for this treaty to be agreed upon in singapore. and there is so much good will here in south korea. take south korean president moon jae-in. ever since he came into power just over a year ago, he has been pushing for a detente with the north koreans. we then had the winter olympics, which was such a -- there was such unifying spirit. and then, you know, behind the scenes, the president has been working furiously to keep preparations for the trump/kim
summit very much on track. now, i should say too that there are people here in south korea who are not convinced. they feel that this is deja vu, that we've seen this before under the clinton administration, under the bush administration with the six-party talks and that both times kim -- well, i should say the north koreans lied. they cheated. they were still developing their nuclear weapons program, and the talks failed. but for now, ana, i think it's fair to say that every south korean is hoping for there to be a very positive outcome in singapore. >> all right, anna coren in seoul for us. thank you. some breaking news. a rare feat in horse racing. a horse named justify has just won the triple crown. we're live from the belmont stakes in moments. te to severe crohn's disease. then i realized something was missing... me. my symptoms were keeping me from being there. so, i talked to my doctor and learned humira is for people
who still have symptoms of crohn's disease after trying other medications. and the majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission in as little as 4 weeks. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. i had a very minor fender bender tonight! in an unreasonably narrow fast food drive thru lane. but what a powerful life lesson. and don't worry i have everything handled. i already spoke to our allstate agent,
and i know that we have accident forgiveness. which is so smart on your guy's part. like fact that they'll just... forgive you... four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it. your plaques are always there at the worst times. constantly interrupting you with itching, burning and stinging. being this uncomfortable is unacceptable.
